In our St John virtual reality, you are placed in an immersive illusion. You will be guided through important first aid topics, such as DRSABCD and defibrillator use by MIA. MIA is your Medical Information Assistant who will offer step by step instructions throughout your training.
We can all agree that first aid training is incredibly valuable and well worth doing. However as technology advances, so must St John. There are 2 main barriers for people to do a first aid course; time and money. The new St John Skills eliminates those obstacles. Short, cost-effective training will allow us to conduct training all over WA. Think remote regional towns, think while you are waiting for a plane at the airport, think…anywhere!
Is it still as effective? Absolutely. Some could even argue that VR makes this an even more valuable learning experience because users can go at their own pace. Go back and repeat if they want to without the pressure of a full class. Users will also be transported into an “environment” that will more closely reflect real life scenarios. This could be a helpful tool to teach users to maintain composure in high-stress situations.
Get ready to experience the digital realm with St John. Learn to save lives with unparalleled technology.
Be amongst the first to become St John Accredited with the new First Aid Skills, in virtual reality. Coming early 2019!
